    just about anything with a high lsa. check specs on the cams and the lsa listed will give you an idea of how mellow they are at idle. 114 and higher will give a smoother idle the higher the number is. the lower will give more of a chop at idle like old school muscle cars. as far as if it works with nitrous i dont know if certain cams like blower style cams work better with nitrous over strong n/a cams.

    Normally a higher lsa works better with nitrous or blower. It gives broader torque range.

    No. It is the overlap which determines the lope of the camshaft and hence the stealth or noise factor.

    Factory LS1 camshaft has -26 degrees overlap.
    LS6 camshaft has -23 GT2-3 about the same.
    All are about 117-8 LSA

    But you can also have a 112 degree with -12 degrees overlap and ideal smoothly.

    Close to 0 degrees, more chop.

    pretty sure you could order the cam without the heads
